Mission

To design and build a better world by delivering sustainable solutions for our customers and creating a supportive workplace for our people.

Vision

A prominent Irish building consultancy, operating in a unique work environment, growing sustainably, while enhancing our community and the lives of our people and their families.

Our Competitive Advantage

  1. The multidisciplinary service. We are the only Irish consultancy offering this blend of services and while some customers may only require one service at a particular time, the support from other specialist fields is a source of value.
  2. We focus heavily on the client relationship, emphasising responsiveness and dependability of delivery, building long lasting relationships through investment in client events. This source of competitive advantage adds a strong subjective element to our brand.
  3. We cultivate a unique work environment, centred around trust, autonomy, and flexibility. We have a low attrition rate and a strong organisational culture. Our brand is therefore appealing to a wider group of stakeholders, i.e. current and future employees, eventually translating to a more consistently delivered service.
